    Stepping Down

    Hey all, When I posted my LOA I already knew that I didn't intend for War3 to be a big part of my life anymore. I decided to stick it out in case my mind changed, but it's been more than a month and my feelings are still the same. I honestly don't want to mislead all the players into thinking I'm going to come back at some point when I currently don't plan on working on War3 ever again. I originally started working on War3 because I loved the server and I loved the community and I wanted to see it be as good as I thought it could be. I know at some point pretty much every regular/sG player has disagreed with me for some decision I made, but I can honestly say the server's best interests were always in the back of my mind in every decision. After about 7 months of working on the server (back in late 2015 when I started my career) my interest in it started to decline for a lot of reasons, mostly burn-out and the players. For me, it's tough being in a position where many people you consider a friend will at some point freak out on you because they disagree with some decision you made in a video game. It's even tougher when you are consistently putting a lot of your evenings and often entire weekends into trying to please the same people by creating things you hope they enjoy, fixing bugs that bother them, or adding expertise for them to find. I've been majorly involved in 3 gaming communities over the years and sG definitely stands out as the best experience. The first one has been dead for many years and the second one has been on life support for 6 or so years - neither had the leadership to withstand the years and the drama like sG has. I kind of wandered around the gaming world for most of college, playing SC2, random ps3 games, a bit of competitive CSGO, etc. without any real connection with players. sG was the first time in probably 5 years that I started playing with a community again and honestly it's the best one I've been a part of. It's had its issues and it still has some issues, but overall it is in a good place with good direction. I know I've made many good friends working on War3 and I really appreciate everyone who took their time to help me make decisions or test things out. You still won't see me much at all until mid-April, but I'm sure I'll be around somewhat regularly after that. Special shout outs to @thorgot @skitt @bulletford for making my time on staff possible by helping me learn to code from nearly 0 prior knowledge and their exceptional patience with my lack of understanding their programmer lingo. I specifically remember when I first started working on SourcePawn and thorgot said something along the lines of "That error means you need to reference an index in the array" and my response was "I don't know what an index or an array are".

    ChosenOne Step Down Thread

    Hello everyone! With much soul searching, I've decided to step down from staff. I've been thinking about stepping down since Fall 2016, but now I think I'm ready. It's been an incredible journey. I find that my media, military, academic, and family obligations pull me further and further away from my dedicated sG responsibilities. I've said repeatedly I wanted to provide exceptional R&R support, regardless of the capacity I serve. First, I want to thank @Junzoufor bring me on staff in 2010. I want to thank @Jasonfor keeping me on staff all these years and his patronage of the sG Poker Tournaments. I would like to thank @driz, my fellow RO's, and the engineers who ushered in the era of automated applications. You, as a community, have supported me in this role over the years. sG supported me and kept me sane during my deployment to Afghanistan in 2014. sG's response to the poker tournaments has been overwhelmingly positive. @fps_trucka's input and writing was instrumental in getting sG published in the International Journal of Virtual Communities and Social Networking. I was so proud to be a member of sG's staff the day that article was published. It's crazy! I recall recruiting kids (yes kids) into sG who are now college graduates, sG Staff, fathers, etc. Seeing the evolution of this clan and the progression of the members makes me smile. I think it's a good time to walk away. Granted I'm 34 years old, but being part of this community keeps me grounded and (at least feeling) young. This step down is more of a "thank you" to sG for being a true community. I'll see everyone in general chat on Discord. We made it to the promise land together. - sG | ChosenOne2000 [L2]

    My Grandfather Passed Away

    Going to apologize in advance if this doesn't come out completely coherent and for whats in it. I lost my Grandfather last night. He and I really hadn't spoken much in the last 11 years. Mostly because we were both proud stubborn assholes who couldn't admit we were wrong (I got it from him). He had been sick for a little while, but I never expected for him to take a turn for the worse so quickly. I'm not really one to share my emotions publicly or to ones close to me, which is probably why I'm writing this to a bunch of strangers on the internet. With the exception of Driz and Chosen, most of you are much younger than I am so I'd like to give you all a little advice. Never take your family for granted. You'll fight, you'll resent them at times, and like me, you'll refuse to talk to them. Chances are it'll be over some petty bullshit that really isn't significant when you look back on it. When it happens, say your peace (because we all do and will), but when you're finished and you're by yourself, make sure you remember who it is you just had an argument with. Remember everything they've done for you and the support they've given you, then go back and patch things up. Chances are you're both probably wrong anyway, so get over it and move on. I never got the opportunity to have that conversation with my Grandfather, and I really think thats whats tearing away at me most inside. He was a great human being who always went out of his way to help others while never asking for anything in return. He never knew it, but he was someone I looked up to and have done my best to try to emulate. I'm going to wrap this up before I keep ranting. If I can offer any advice from going through what I am right now it'd be this: Love and cherish your family if they deserve it. They won't be around forever. Hell if you can today, tell your parents/grandparents you love them and apologize for whatever bullshit argument you got into and move on. Don't be an asshole like Clamps and refuse to patch things up until they admit they're wrong or you lose them, its just not worth it. I'm sorry for spilling my guts out about this here. I needed an outlet to get this out of me and didn't want to take it to social media to get friends/famiy's bullshit pity and I dont keep a journal. And naturally, like everything else in my life, I'm getting through this with music.

    Response to the LEG Vote

    I'd like to thank the sG community for the kind words and support after my resignation from staff. Earlier today, I received notification from a community member JCS voted on and denied legend status. I greatly appreciate and respect the outcome of the vote. I've never publicly disagreed with JCS decisions and I don't intend to start now. Please stop messaging JCS @sweetrock. Maybe one day I'll join the fraternity of legends with @Junzou, @Jason, and @driz. However today is not that day. Thank you JCS for the consideration. - C12K

    Suicide is never the answer.

    Yesterday, I was casually snapchatting a good friend of mine from church. Randomly, she just asks if she can talk to me about stuff. Of course, I said I'm here for her anytime she needs to talk about anything. She then goes on to tell me how she's been struggling with depresssion really badly lately, how therapy hasn't worked for her in the past, and stuff like that. Of course, through all of this, I'm trying to help calm her down and trying to help her out. This goes on for about an hour. She then starts talking to me about how she's been having suicidal thoughts lately. Again, of course I try to calm her down, I'm telling her how suicide is never the answer, and that she really needs to talk to her parents or someone at least about all of this to get help. Well, she then tells me how she has already taken a bunch of pills. She kept trying to tell me how she doesn't think it's enough to kill her, but I didn't care. After about 15 minutes of going back and forth with her, I finally convince her to call 911, by threatening to tell her parents myself about what's going on with her. She ended up getting escorted, by an ambulance, to the Emergency Room. She's going to be okay. I believe all of the drugs are almost flushed out of her system. She's currently in a normal hospital room (AKA not intensive care and all that). As soon as my school is over, I'm going to head up to the hospital to visit her. I make this post to say this. Suicide is never the answer. I know, as I'm sure some of you do, we've had a few members here in our community that have either contemplated suicide, or have attempted. Find help, please. You hurt the people around you who love you whenever you attempt or go through with suicide. I, along with probably many more in this community, are here for you if you need to talk to someone. I hope you guys have a great day.

    New Community Legend!

    Hello everyone! As most of you are aware that last week the community saw the departure of ChosenOne2000 as a staff member, ChosenOne2000 was one of the communities longest standing staff members, serving this community as a staff member for the past 7 years. Over these past 7 years ChosenOne dedicated himself to bettering the community, he would host regular events for poker and Left 4 Dead that drew in large community participation. ChosenOne is also known for not just bettering the community, but helping our community members better their careers in the real world. On numerous occasions ChosenOne would sit down and help people with their careers in the military, making sure they knew what was important and what would really help them push their careers to next level. Chosen was not just a great staff member, but was also a great community member… and for those reason the JCS would like to take this time to publicly congratulate chosen for reaching Legend status. The JCS would like to thank you personally for all the dedication and time you have put into this community for the past 7 years, it will not be forgotten. Thanks, - Eddy

    CORRUPTION IN SG: A CTARK STORY

    RECENTLY, AS YOU ALL KNOW, A 'BELOVED' MEMBER OF THIS COMMUNITY HAS BEEN PROMOTED TO A RANK OF HIGHER AUTHORITY OVER US 'LOWER' MEMBERS OF THIS INTERNET FORUM BOARD. AND SOME OF YOU MAY SAY, "HEY, RENEGADE, WHY THE FUCK SHOULD I CARE?" OR "OH MAN NOT ANOTHER ALL CAPS RENEGADE THREAD.". BUT I AM HERE TO INFORM YOU THAT YES, YOU SHOULD CARE. AND THE REASON FOR THIS IS BECAUSE THIS SO CALLED 'STAFF' MEMBER, SOMEONE WHO IS SUPPOSED TO SHOWCASE A HIGHER LEVEL OF COMMITMENT AND INTEGRITY THAN US LESSER MEMBERS OF THIS HUMBLE COMMUNITY HAS BEEN CAUGHT RED HANDED TAKING BRIBES FOR 'FAVORS' AND OTHER SPECIAL TREATMENT. THE EVIDENCE IS AS FOLLOWS. IN THIS IMAGE, PROVIDED TO ME BY AN ANONYMOUS SOURCE, YOU CAN CLEARLY SEE THAT CTARK, DESPITE HIS RECENT PROMOTION, HAS COLLUDED WITH MY UNDERCOVER REPORTER TO SELL AWAY THE RIGHTS OF OTHER STAFF MEMBERS AT PREMIUM PRICES. NOW I DON'T KNOW ABOUT YOU, MY FELLOW FORUM MEMBERS, BUT I WILL NOT STAND FOR THIS BLATANT CORRUPTION. AND THIS IS NOT THE FIRST TIME CTARK HAS BEEN IN A CONTROVERSY. NO, CTARK HAS OFTEN 'ABUSED' HIS POWER IN THE PAST TO FORCE US LESSER MEMBERS TO PERFORM MENIAL LABOR ON OUR OWN SERVERS FOR NO REASON AT ALL. THIS SCREENSHOT SHOULD BE ALL THE PROOF YOU NEED, AS YOU CAN CLEARLY SEE CTARK IS SEEN HERE ABUSING HIS POWERS AS AN ADMIN TO FORCE THE 'INNOCENT BYSTANDER WHO DID NOTHING WRONG' CHICAGO TED TO MINE OBSIDIAN FOR HIS OWN PLEASURE. NOW SOME O YOU MIGHT BE ASKING "BUT RENEGADE IF HES THAT BAD HOW DID HE GET ADMIN/STAFF IN THE FIRST PLACE?". AND I TELL YOU THE CORRUPTION THIS MAN HAS SPREAD RUNS DEEPER THAN ANY OF YOU CAN IMAGINE. THIS 'PHOTO' TAKEN BY ONE OF OUR FREELANCE PHOTOGRAPHERS SPEAKS FOR ITSELF LADIES AND GENTLEMEN. AT THIS JUNCTURE, I SUGGEST WE SUSPEND ALL 'STAFF' RELATED ACTIVITIES UNTIL A FULL INVESTIGATION CAN BUT CONDUCTED INTO THIS MATTER.

    PC Building High-Level Guidance (before you post, read)

    Get an 80 plus platinum PSU that provide what you need (eg don't buy a 1000W PSU when you need 500W. You want your PSU to operate at around 80% of its max. do you want modular? do you need single or dual 12V rails? pick a CPU Understand what you're getting, if you dont know the difference between an i7, an i5, and an i3, why are you picking one? understand what hyperthreading is and whether you need it or not (you probably dont need it and if you have it you should disable it) understand which CPUs are unlocked and which are not AND why that matters or doesn't Pick a motherboard that has enough PCIe slots for you enough USB version X slots for you M.2? verify it's the proper M.2 slot for you (not all M.2 slots support a disk) enough memory to satisfy your requirements check if the chipset prefers dual or quad channel memory if not using an external sound card verify it meets your needs ENSURE THE BOARD HAS THE PROPER SOCKET FOR THE CPU IN STEP 2 KNOW WHAT KIND OF MEMORY THE BOARD REQURIES Buy memory that has good ratings Check timings, especially if you plan to OC check voltage, especially if you plan to OC check speed, especially if you plan to OC Pick a CPU cooler the included one is fine (with the included paste) for normal operation if you plan to OC, get some good thermal paste (i've always liked artic silver (i think it's up to 5 now??)) open loop water cooling vs closed loop water cooling vs air vs heat pipes vs thermoelectric, liquit nitrogen, healium, immersion, etc pick a graphics card Ensure your monitors will plug into it, do you really want to introduce a single point of failure by using an adapter? Ensure it can plays the games you wanna play future use? cooling? do you need it to support liquid cooling? memory, how much do you need, why? power requirements? SLI/crossfire requirements disks Are you going to use a SATA HDD? SATA SSD? NVMe SSD? the fastest NVMe SSD is 4-6x faster than the fastest SATA SSD which is 4-5x faster than the fastest SATA HDD do you want RAID? software raid is bad, don't waste your time, if you want raid (raid0 isn't real raid) buy a raid controller if you want NVMe do you have enough PCIe lanes to support full speed, if not are you OK with that? case <-- this is where you save money, not anything above here, ESPECIALLY NOT THE PSU ensure it's the appropriate size, too big of a case is bad for air circulation ensure you pull air in before you push air out use physics... convection already occurs, support it sound, support for radiators, proper size compatibility for your components (motherboard, length of video card, etc) peripherals <--this is also where you save money because a mouse is a mouse and a keyboard is a keyboard. you can always buy something better later. Where should you check reviews at? anandtech and tomshardware are great resources When asking for help with your build Post your budget Post your list of components that you already have access to (ie. from your old system, such as keyboard, mouse, monitor) Post what games you plan to play or if you plan to do 3D shit Post what is important to you in those games, such as 144fps at ultra, or instant loading of levels, etc. do your research using the first set of points.

    sG on official Rust servers

    I was wondering if anyone was interested in starting up a compound on an official server after a wipe. Rather than us shooting eachother, we can all group up and take a world together as a huge zerg. It honestly sounds fun raiding with 20+ people, or chilling in a huge base that we all work on and sleep in together. We don't even have to be on at the same time: visiting the sG headquarters on an official whenever we're in the mood sounds dope AF. Mabey you're in the mood for official but don't want to start up solo -- our base would be the perfect home for anyone in this situation, which I personally have had in the past. Some players on our servers prefer to hop in, build for a few, then hop off; others like to constantly farm and raid. An sG base on an official server would work great for both playstyles. I know some people who play on our server are also playing on official on the side -- I think it'd be awesome if everyone instead banded together and ruled a server. The one and only downside to this might be a small loss of playtime on our server, but like above, some people are already spending time on two servers so it might not even be a loss at all. Even if you don't have the time: I've seen plenty of people chill on our server until other groupmates pm that it's raid time on an official server -- a call to arms system like that should let you play on both servers just fine since being on for raiding time or defending a base from rockets are where the major fun of Rust is at. It also means people don't have to choose between playing the two servers and can just hop on the official server whenever something's going on. Rustafied (major official server host) has monthly wipe cycles as opposed to our weekly ones -- that's plenty of time to play on our server as well as an official one imo. We've all been shooting at eachother for weeks now and there's been a lot of grudges growing between our own community members and friends. Others have 20+ friends shared on the map but aren't technically "teamed" with them (since we don't want 30 man clans on our 50 pop server). With everyone suddenly on the same side and our small world invading an official's, we can definitely mend some bridges and have a damn lot of fun while doing so. Leave a message below w/ your thoughts or if you're interested so we can get some beds going if we do decide to have a base on a server. EDIT: We're likely going to start up the sG village base next official wipe, which will be February 2nd (Thurs). The server is still being decided on -- if you'd like to recommend one then please post below.

    Help my Mother

    Hello my friends, my Mother Heather was recently diagnosed with cancer, AML (acute myeloid leukemia) to be specific. She has to be in the hospital for a total of 4 months and has just started her chemotherapy that she has to do for 7 days 24/7. She is a mother of 2 boys, me Cade (16) and my brother Brock (17). This has hit my mom and the family completely by surprise and it's heartbreaking for her to not be able to support me and my brother like she use to be able to. I'm hoping by sharing this with the sG community possibly we can spread the word about the Gofundme that was established to help my mom pay the bills and support her family. Please don't feel pressured at all to donate money we just would appreciate it if you could read through the Gofundme and like the gofundme to spread it around also if possible please send good thoughts her way. Thanks for your time. - Cade https://www.gofundme.com/nv-help-for-heather

    I didn't realize I was a legend, IMO I don't deserve it. Thank you for taking the news professionally, The JCS are currently re-voting and discussing since apparently some think there wasn't a vote (stupid shitters who miss JCS meetings or don't pay attention). I will personally PM you of our decision after we finish. Regardless of whether or not you get legend I would like to say Thank you for all the work and effort you have put into this community over your very lengthy tenure as a staff member, I wasn't around for all of the years but as long as I have known you, you have been a great guy who just likes to sit down and play some games and when it came down to staff discussions you always provided an unbiased opinion, which is always a great thing to have.

    sG's Got Talent!

    In an effort to know more about our cute little "casual" community, I figured it would be cool if we were presented a chance to tell each other things about us that normally wouldn't come up in conversation. Things such as these could include personality traits, hobbies, interesting features, crazy environments, things that make you tick, things like that. The point of this thread is to ask yourself the question "What about you makes you think you're unique from the others?" and then answer in kind. I'll start: As some of you may know (or have figured out from my name), I'm a die-hard Star Wars nerd. I could probably answer any Star Wars question that you can ask me to the point where you become uncomfortable and honestly regret asking in the first place. Some lesser known things about me are: 1.) I was born and currently live in Detroit, MI. Detroit gets a bad rep across the globe, and yes, some things about Detroit have earned it. However, it's not all bad, there are plenty of places, especially midtown, that are trying their hardest to bring this place around. 2.) I was born with deaf parents and am fluent in American Sign Language. I actually learned sign language before I was able to speak, my first sign being "Milk". These are some of the things that I feel make me an unique individual and I'm sure many of you have skills or traits that make you special (not that type of special, unless that's what makes you unique of course)! Be as serious or as silly as you want.

    An Intro not About You but About Me!

    Hey sG community, My name is A.J., I am a 18 year old college student from Washington, I am unsure about my GameMe profile at the moment but am currently working on it. I do have a microphone, and my favorite server right now is the sG TTT West 24/7 minecraft server; all of the people on there are definitely fun to play with and the server (most of the time) works fantastically. And I do have a mic. I am currently going to school to double major in Music Education and Music Composition and theory with my goal to get my doctorate in theory. I thought about switching majors to computer science after I realized I wasn't bad at that but I've been involved with music for so long I couldn't imagine doing anything else. And I have never been a part of a real gaming community before; the closest I've ever come to something like that is my friend Bryce made our own clan on Black Ops 2 that lasted for about a week since it was just 3 or 4 of us. Anyways, I look forward to interacting and learning about this gaming community since it looks really fun! -A.J.

    What a great year

    It seems like it wasn't too long ago when @Tyrone and I first got SO. MG is getting so populated now that we often times see the server at capacity. I would just like to thank all the regulars here that helped make this happen, and welcome any new players that are lurking right now. It was a fun year for minigames and let's hope that the new year will be just as good.

    Stepping Down

    When I met Face on war3, I disliked him a lot. He was just another person giving blasphemous remarks about the balance of this or that race. Just another player that compelled me to voice_enable 0. However, as he played more, he became bearable to listen to when suggesting things about balance or complaining about a race. Face has come a long way and understands what the war3 engineers deal with when on the server. It definitely isn't all bad, but there are days when all you get is flack. Learning about balance is difficult and takes a lot of time to understand. I remember seeing a few of Faces first races coded up and just kinda chuckled: "Wait til Spicy Chicken gets his hands on this". However, each race released by Face would quickly make its way to where it should be within the balance of the server. Over the time he has spent on the war3 team, he has become one of the best balancers of the server, IMO. I know I really enjoyed reading some of the giant balance patch notes, all of which brought some interesting play to the server. Thorgot and Bulletford took Face in and really helped him get to know the ins and outs of SourcePawn. I once was in his shoes, learning how to code when Yiyas let me mess around with WCS1. Face is a fast learner that put in the effort. Learning to code, even just a small scripting language, really increases your ability to think about and solve complex problems. If anything, I hope Face has benefited from this experience in some way. Regardless of contributing to war3, learning how to write software takes a lot of practice and I sincerely believe if Face wanted to write software as a career, he wouldn't be far off from what it takes. Hell, knowing how to use GIT properly is already above a lot of software engineer's heads. Face, I really appreciate the time and effort you have put in. I would like to commend you on your determination to learn how to code and significantly contribute to our war3 community. It really means a lot to me, even if I'm not really all that active within the war3 ecoystem anymore. I want the server to thrive and continue being one of the best war3 servers out there. You have done nothing but contribute wonderful things to our server and it is sad to see such a great war3 engineer retire. Only those who have a real love for the server can do what you have done. From balance, new races, events, solving long standing bugs, and in general trying to make our war3 server run as smooth as possible; You have put in so much time into our server and have been a real asset to it. Thank you so much for the contributions you have made to the server. It was pleasure working with you and I sincerely hope you stick around within the community!

    My Grandfather Passed Away

    Clamps... mi amigo… mi hermano. Lo siento. I wish I could turn back time and help in some way but I know that’s impossible. I’m extremely sorry for your loss. Do let me know if you need help with anything or just need to talk. I’m here for you. Often families are compared to trees, each section branching out in a different way. But those branches stem from the trunk. They’re all connected. Even though you may not be immediately connected with one branch or another, when one breaks off, all the other branches are affected. My thoughts will be with you and your family in this time tough time. Consummation Of Grief "I even hear the mountains the way they laugh up and down their blue sides and down in the water the fish cry and the water is their tears. I listen to the water on nights I drink away and the sadness becomes so great I hear it in my clock it becomes knobs upon my dresser it becomes paper on the floor it becomes a shoehorn a laundry ticket it becomes cigarette smoke climbing a chapel of dark vines. . . it matters little very little love is not so bad or very little life what counts is waiting on walls I was born for this I was born to hustle roses down the avenues of the dead." -- Charles Bukowski

    Bullying, Racism and Griefing on War3

    It's easy to feel like you're being bullied when nobody is defending you. For a few weeks on WCS, Grincch and someone else I can't remember were harassing me pretty frequently about being Jewish. At a certain point I realized that the fun I was having by playing was not worth the negative of having people harass me, so I stopped playing WCS entirely. The next time I played it was when I discovered there was a half-finished version for CSGO and started working on it myself. When the excuse for bullying someone is "technically Judaism isn't a race" that's bullshit. It's still bullying, which is against the rules.
